    Though Darcy struggles privately with his desire for Elizabeth Bennet, he must still fulfill his roles as landlord, master, brother, and friend. In Book Two, the "silent time" of Austen's novel, Fitzwilliam Darcy and his personal world emerge as he deals with his servants, including a valet with aspirations of sartorial triumph.

    connie says: "wonderful, wonderful fluff"
    "gothic intrigue and narrator do not mix."
    Overall

    While I liked the first installment enough to buy the two others, this second installment wanders into the ridiculous. The decidedly gothic and macabre turn the book takes it a complete contrast to the sentiment of P&P. Not to mention the continual irritation the choice of narrator presents to listener. His nasal voice might make a decent Sherlock Holmes but makes for a disturbing Darcy.
